Beer for my horses  Toby Keith

well a [G]man come on teh [C]6 o'clock [G]news
saying somebody got shot, some[D]body's been a[G]bused
somebody blew up a building somebody[C] stole a [G]car
somebody got away somebody [D]didn't get too [G]far
[Em]yea, they didn't [D]get too [G]far
                                    grand[G]pappy told my pappy back in [C]my day [G]son
that a man had to answer for the [D]wicked he d[G]one
take all the rope in texas, find a [C]tall oak [G]tree
round up all of them bad boys, hang them [D]high in the [G]streets
[Em]for all the [D]people to [G]see
cause [D]justice is the one thing you should [C]always [G]find
you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta [D]draw a hard [G]line
when the [D]gun smoke settles we'll sing a [C]victory [G]tune
and we'll all meet back at the [D]local sa[G]lloon
and we'll raise up our glasses a[C]gainst evil [G]forces sayin
[C]whiskey for my men, beer for my [G]horses
[(C](whiskey for my men, beer for my [G]horses[)]) -->  this is played in the 2nd and 3rd chorus' only
                                    we got to[G]o many gansters doing [C]dirty [G]deeds
too much corruption and [D]crime on the [G]streets
it's time the long arm of the law put a [C]few more in the [G]ground
send them all to their maker and he'll[D] settle them [G]down
[Em]you can bet [D]he'll set em [G]down


finally, the instrumental after the 2nd chorus is just G, C, G, D, G, C, G, D-Dsus-D, G

chorus --> after the chorus, end with quick strums on D, then C, then nail the finish with a strong G

It's just a guess, but I believe that the line "whiskey for my men,beer for my horses" should be "F" over whiskey, "C" over men and "G" over horses. I play this with the capo on the 3rd fret to match the recording.
